Tropical Storm SailNet Marching Up the East Coast

Well, at least as far as St. Simons Island, GA.

Melrna, wingNwing (and husband) and I are currently sitting pretty in St. Augustine, FL. It's storming now but the trip from Miami was fantastic. We headed out to the Gulf Stream and the current swept us up on Sunday at a steady 9 knots SOG. We sailed Sunday afternoon until around midnight when a whopping storm blew over. Monday and Tuesday was all motorsailing but The Most Female Moderator got to check off her list of sea creatures to see. There was a whale sighting but I can't confirm that.

Most importantly, we're all at different stages of boating (liveaboard to weekend sailor) and each of us learned something new from everyone else whether it was some new aspect of boating, boating life, navigation, weather, or how to do something differently and more safely.

And good lord the food has been incredible.

Hopefully the storms will settled down for ya. Go enjoy yourselves, but watch out for Jaye. I'm not driving up there to bail you out!

Re: Tropical Storm SailNet Marching Up the East Coast

I want everyone to look at the pic of Dan very close. Is it just me, or does he have that look of, "GOD SAVE ME! I can swim back to shore... yes I can... I can make it..."

Poor fellow. That is a REAL trooper.

Re: Tropical Storm SailNet Marching Up the East Coast

ahhh - wake up to "Mutiny at Dawn" then on to tales of storm and fair winds, "rum and wine o'clock" before sundown.
Good day at Sailnet!

I nominate Dan for the peace Nobel prize.

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak!.

So....where to now? We anchored off St. Simon for a couple of days, intending to keep heading north. We moved to the Brunswick Landing Marina, and may hang here through hurricane season. The thunderstorms on this coast have been relentless! Too tired to fight any more....
